Football Manager 2023 Skins - FM 2023 FLUT skin - Version 6.0
Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN version 6.0 for FM23!!

First of all I would like to give a great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still editing the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all of players who decided to distinguish my work with a donation!! Although just a small part of FM Players who use the skin made a donation (I edited the skin as a hobby and, as you know, completely free), I always feel honoured and happy when people recognize the work done and decide to contribute. So, I reinforce, I have to give a special thank you to that friends of FlutsKin!!!!!!

Also a thank you to all the skin makers who indirectly contribute to my work, and a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin), to MICHAEL MURRAY since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work, to QVORDRUP, for the metallic “Round country flags” and his great collaboration in the “country locator maps”, to NUNO KOPIO for the “Square shiny flags” I included as alt files (for using as an alternative to the “Round country flags”) and to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin. I also thank you for the contributes made by NOLEAFWILEN and RICHBELL.

This FLUTSKIN for FM23 is almost equal to the last version of Flutskin for FM22. Therefore, you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present them here (it includes the most required stuff such as instant result during a match, picture of the player who scores a goal in the match, last starting XI in club overview panel, citypics, outside and inside stadiums vision possibility, real 2D kits in player overview panel, etc). I suggest you to see with your eyes all the changes!!

Some of those tabs include new ring graphs of attribute analysis profile (physical, mental, technical, goalkeeping, defensive and offensive) which were created based on the great work of GROOT in his Electric Panther Skin.

  • Finally, I would like to thank you Robin Heart who challenge me to do new things in the skin and gave me a new background picture for including in the background selector. Thank you, my friend!

      3. club details in club overview panel as it was in the last version of the skin

    “Main Changes” in Version 2.0
    • New Intro panel, now with 4 backgrounds rotating with each other
    • New ticket picture in the pre-match panel (thank you, NunoKopio, for the new image)

    • Reported bugs fixed
    • Note 1: I also decided to keep the panels of the Uefa Cups, Bundesliga and EFL as default. However, I included a new alt for those who prefer using the match titlebar of the FlutSkin, in all competitions.

    The pack includes many alt files for customize the skin (please read the read me file included in the pack) and several tutorials: 1) how should be the configs for the stadiums packs; 2) how can you adjust the size and the place of the kit number in player overview panel; 3) how can you do the 2D kits adapted for Flutskin. BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ALT FOLDERS AND ALSO AT THE READ ME AND TUTORIAL FILES!!

    You also can download the stadiums megapack and the citypics released by DAZS8 (thank you, my friend)

    Important note regarding TV LOGOS:
    Although the default tv logo is the one I use, of course you can easily change it; for that you just have to go to skin/graphics/icons/tv logos. In that folder there is a alt folder with many TV logos. You just have to replace the tv logo.png and the tv [email protected] for that one you want. Of course you should rename the new logos as tv logo and tv [email protected] You also can use other logos made by you. The procedure to use them is exactly the same. However, I should remember that yo should use logos with the right height. For tv logo you should use 25px and for the @2x you should use 50px.

    As always FlutSkin is completely free to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.
    You can do so by clicking the button down below:

    Resolution requirements:
    This skin was made to work properly in 3840x2160 (4K with windows display settings 200%) and also 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions..

    How to add Flut Skin in FM23

    Download and extract the .zip file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

    Place the "fm2023flutskin_dark" folder here:
    Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2023\skins

    1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
    2. Start FM23 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
    3. You should see FM 2023 Flut Skin dark - 6.0 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
    4. Hit the Confirm button.

    Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

      FLUT Many thanks. Much appreciated!
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi Swainf: ufortunately this year a couldn't make it work for showing the kits there....I tried a lot even since the first version of FlutSKin for FM23 without success.

      Hi Shefeld: my bad. Sorry but I copied the wrong link. Here is the correct link.

      Hi Klapco: are you using the alt for attributes without background boxes? If not, you can find a folder in the skin pack.

      Hi jungberg: that's why I allways repeat that suggestion, even imagine that people, surely, already tried it. Is somekind the same that when we have a problem in our PC and ask an advice to a computer expert: the first answer is allways "did you try to turn off and turn on the computer?" lol

      Hi tormi: trough the years that is an issue reported for some people. And yes, I believe the skin slow down a little bit the game. However, just in a few panels and not much time (5 seconds...I don't remember that happened in my game; only a little bit slower and nothing that disturbs me). I never found the cause for that (maybe the fact that there are so many graphics and so many xmls pointed one to another, etc...but I really don't know why).
    • tormi_scout's avatar
      Howdy partners!
      Just wondering if its only me or if this fantastic skins slow down others computers. Sometimes I have to wait up to 5 seconds to switch screens. Compared to other skins that take maximum 1 seconds. If it is only me, any tips for fixing the slowness? I had the same problem with the FM22 version.
    • FMLjungberg's avatar
      @Flut: Thanks for your prompt reply. Clearing cache and reloading skin solved the issue. Why I didn't consider this myself! :-) Thanks for a great skin as always!
    • Klapco's avatar
      On the left is the picture from the player overview attributes in which I changed the color through preferences, on the right is the default color of the attributes in the scouting report and I am asking how to make the color the same as in the first picture, where do I change the color of the attributes for the scouting card report.
    • Shefeld Hammer's avatar
      Thanks mate. Unfortunately that file is the player overvie panel. Unless I'm missing something. I've just had both my eyes operated on and I'm on the bus home so I can't see a lot!
    • swainf's avatar
      I do want this kits add at home, how I can make it? Look at picture

      This is FM19 or FM20
      This is FM23 Example wish picture add
    • Flut's avatar
      FMLjungberg: hi. I couldn’t see your screenshot (I receive a message saying that the page doesn’t exists). However, I didn’t change anything regarding that panel. Maybe there is a conflict with other skin or other version of flutskin. Please try to clear the cache, keep only thios skin (and this skin version) in the skins folder of the game, and reload the game.

      Phildw: thanks!!!! Regarding your question, I took a look in the xml in the alt folder (player additional attributes panel.xml), I tested and it works well removing CA/PA from the attributes in player overview panel.

      Klapco: sorry but I didn’t understand. The colour of the attributes background boxes are the same in all the skin….Could you please show me the screenshots showing the diferences?

      Shefeld Hammer: hi and thanks. Also for reporting that bug that I didn’t notice. In meantime I tried to fixed it correctly but for using the full club names I couldn’t make it. However, I did na alternative way to use the full names in White but now readable. You can use this file (place it in panels/match/comps/eng/efl). If you prefer return to the default (with the 6 letter club names) you just have to remove this file and reload the game).
    • FMLjungberg's avatar
      Hi @flut, I don't know if anyone else rteported this problem. On match day I previously got the faces on the players on the formation line up before kick off, just as shown on this print screen: I think after version 5.0 they have been missing and the lineup formation just show an empty green pitch for both teams. How can I fix this? I am using the sourtitoutsi cut out facepack and I can see the faces everywhere else in the game.
    • Phildw's avatar
      Brilliant skin just keeps on getting better. Frustratingly, the Alt panel to remove CA and PA from Player Profile doesn't seem to remove CA/PA. I've noticed that this ALT panel hasn't worked for the last few updates. Just a little blip in what is otherwise an amazing Skin thanks.
    • Klapco's avatar
      friend, where can I change the color of the attributes in the scouting report to be like in the player overview panel
    • Shefeld Hammer's avatar
      great skin as ever. Just a quick query. When I play an efl game, any team in white has a white background and white text so their name isnt visible. Is there a solution to this does anyone know?
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi lakchakley: I did a new upload of the skin pack. if you download the new version again, you will see an alt for that (including two other xmls in order to have the v5 player overview exactly was it is).
    • lakchakkey's avatar
      Can you upload player overview panel.xml from V5 for me?
    • Flut's avatar
      @khamann10: thanks!! :)

      @lakchakkey: you just have to use the player overview panel.xml from V5

      @nikolaosaek and @vonreichsm: thanks for reporting since I don't have noticed that. For making works I had to remove the attributes from Player Panel 5 and 6 and now it works.
      Here is the file. Place it in the player folder of the skin

      @Vonreichsm: regarding that panel, is not a bug. I preferred to not use that background in order to have a more clean background in that panel. However, you can easily include that background. Go to fixtures list panel.xml and change

      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" apply_to_children="true" />

      <widget class="picture" file="backgrounds/default" id="bgnd">


      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" apply_to_children="true" />

      <widget class="picture" file="backgrounds/fixtures" id="bgnd">
    • vonreichsm's avatar
      second thing i´ve found:
      At version 6 i have the default (blue) background at fixture and not the right background from fixtures (see screen).
    • vonreichsm's avatar
      Thanks again for the skin.
      I have the same problem like nikolaosaek.
    • nikolaosaek's avatar
      Hi flut. With the update the player attributes dont focus on his position. For ex when I see a GK his attributew dont focus on what attributes he needs, They dont highlight. I hope you understand what I am saying, thanks,
    • lakchakkey's avatar
      Can you help me, Flut?
      I want player overview panels back to version 5.0.
      like this.
    • khamann10's avatar
      I really love that you took feedback serious and changed several things in the new update. Much love too you and great Work! <3
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi all

      After many hours spent in editing the new version of the skin…finally I finished it!!

      I put a great effort in order to deliver a version really improved! I hope you like this new version!

      And now I need to rest (because professional work is intense)
    • Jaxx400's avatar
      @Bosnjo it's with the old file.
      i have not tried to switch zoom with the new version.
      in one attempt i have switch during the match the skin to panther and back again with the Flut v5 and the heart icons was updating correct, but i could not see the full tablet.
      I have tried to reinstall the game and to delete the game folders but nothing has changed.
      If it can help i have tried to use flut v3 that orked correct but now also the v3 has the same heart icons problem. I think the last game patch has somoe king of bug with the zoom with the Flut skin
    • Bosnjo's avatar
      @Jaxx400 Is it when you use the old or the new match widget bar xml.?
    • Jaxx400's avatar
      The problem is the resolution for me. I play with 125% zoom 3440x1440.
      Changing the zoom to 100% the heart icon are refreshed correct, but if i switch again to 125% they are not updated.
